“Listening costs money because it is time consuming. However, in the end it saves money because mistakes are corrected, potential problems are avoided, and more creative and cost-effective solutions are generated. Studies by Human Synergistics, developers of the classic team exercise, the Desert Survival Situation™, demonstrated that teams with good listening skills consistently outperformed teams where the members did not listen to each other.”

Human Synergistics International thanks trainers, practitioners, consultants, and educators across the globe for making our team-building simulations the most widely used and acclaimed in the world.
When Human Synergistics first introduced the Desert Survival Situation™, our clients could not get enough of this innovative team activity based on the concept of synergy—that is, people working together can achieve better results than they can individually. The Desert Survival Situation has become one of the most widely-used team-building activities in the world and has served as the model for other numerous other exercises used for training and development internationally.
Human Synergistics’ team-building simulations provide a unique opportunity to quickly and objectively measure whether your teams are achieving synergy. They are designed for team building, developing more constructive group processes, and demonstrating the impact of communication and collaboration on solution effectiveness. HSI offers a wide variety of team-building simulations in four series.
